If attending the clinic, please make sure you take your insurance card, social security number, and an insurance claim form if necessary. It is very important that you also bring us a note from the doctor stating what your injury is and if there are any restrictions. This is necessary for ANY doctors visit, even if it is just a walk in clinic Please follow the link for directions on how to reach their clinic on 21 Spurs Ln.

Athletic Training Room Rules/Policies
1. The athletic training room is a medical facility. If an athlete is injured and cannot practice he/she will be under the care and direction of the athletic training staff. If the athlete sees a doctor, he/she is now under the doctors care (see rule 4 for further explanation)
2. ALL students in athletics MUST have the appropriate UIL physical forms on file in the athletic training room before they are cleared to participate in their sport. This includes any practice, before, during or after school, both in-season and out-of-season. The paperwork MUST be turned into Coach K or Coach Martin for review before being cleared.
3. Report all injuries to the athletic trainers and/or coaches. Injuries should be reported as soon as possible. If you miss morning treatment time, you will not be allowed to miss class unless there is an emergency.
4. Please notify the athletic trainers if you plan to see a doctor for your injury. Athletes MUST submit a doctor’s note immediately upon return to school. We must follow doctor’s orders, including return-to-play guidelines. If you are seen by a doctor you can only be cleared to play by a doctor unless otherwise indicated.
5. Morning treatments are from 7:30-8:30 am every school day. Please be prompt and allow for enough time for your treatment. Morning treatments are not a punishment for being injured, it is an opportunity to receive treatment and recover sooner.

What does an Athletic Trainer do??
Athletic trainers are part of the allied health profession and work in a variety of ways to either help athletes heal from injuries or to help prevent injuries from occurring while athletes practice or compete. In the US, in order to be an athletictrainer you must complete a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in athletic training. Many people in this field also hold master’s degrees and PhDs. After completing the minimum college requirements, the athletictrainer must take examinations in the US to become board certified.
The Athletic Trainer tends to work alongside other medical professionals, and usually works with doctors, especially those who specialize in sports medicine. When an athlete is injured, the athletictrainer helps to carry out any plans and methods for healing injuries. Depending upon the injury, athletic trainers may help bandage, tape, or use methods that allow the athlete to continue in their sport immediately. Alternately, they may work with athletes by helping them do rehabilitative activities, assessing them for ability to return to competition, and continuing to note any problems or progress the athlete is making during recovery. Additionally, athletic trainers are on hand in most sports programs to evaluate exercises and the sport itself in order to make sure injuries are kept to a minimum.
